Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #19228
This is identical to the Red Sea white form; see comments for photo 19955.

Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #19955
This fits my understanding of viridescens, albeit the pale form. It was originally described from East Africa, so loaclity fits.

Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #16701
I think this is Tritoniopsis elegans, variable in colour and pattern, but usually with opaque white markings, very branched gills, and an obvious tail.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #9119
A juvenile individual.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #9120
This tritoniid nudibranch is characterised by the long and slender body, rather sparse gills that are supported on tall stalks, beige or brown background colour, and the distinct opaque white pattern down the centre of the dorsum.
